Yes this is a good match. Been in tech for 30yrs and need to make the transition to AWS. So far it makes sense and is presented well.
Really great course, detailing a lot of important pieces of AWS and including things like the key differences between types of S3 bucket and what S3 Glacier is for. Wolfgang is definitely very knowledgeable about AWS. It was really great to go over the RDS and batch services in the Additional Videos. It should be noted that to follow the course step by step a credit card will be needed to purchase a domain and to pay for the use of the wiki and Windows instance types. Also, following the Batch guide in Additional Videos uses a Large EC3 instance, which is not covered by the free tier and may cost money. No details on the role used for Lambda functions, selecting “create new role” when creating the function leads to an error relating to not being able to access EC2 instances. This is easy to resolve by attaching a policy that can see EC2 instances, but it would be really nice to describe that during the video. I don’t think both the Windows and Wiki EC2 instance setups are required, both basically show the same thing (that we can start an instance based on a marketplace type and connect to it). I feel the Wiki instance was more valuable since it details that sometimes you need to access the logs to get the default credentials for the site.
The instructor seems to be reading from his notes at times, which seems to me that he is doing it fast. I feel he can pause and explain a few points from time to time.
The course is given in a simple way so that any one can understand it. Congratulation Mr Wolfgang Unger. good job !!
most of the course is going on the theory and from AWS document content only it should be good if it contains some more hands on with some more detailed description.
The main topics covered were well presented but I feel a lot of features were skipped over or only the surface was scratched. I'd have liked a more tightly focussed, detailed look at the core functions.
Very much required this course for those want to work on cloud environment . Instructor is really nice and deliver training in very excellent way .
The audio could be a bit better and the video for the examples could be better if they were more zoomed in.
In my opinion, this is a very good tutorial for absolute beginners like me, it's easy following and experimenting his examples.
So far the details explained are good. I was looking for something like this which explains small things in detail.
